Water Tower Construction & Controls

Windemuller has worked on water tower projects in Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Illinois, implementing the electrical and telemetry (measurement and observation) systems for approximately 150 towers. Throughout our projects, we have developed solid relationships with the major tank builders in these states, and work closely with project managers to ensure the project is completed on time and in accordance with all regulatory specifications.

Our Capabilities

  • Disconnects
  • FAA-Approved Incandescent or LED Obstruction Lighting
  • Generators & Transfer Switches
  • GFCI Receptacles
  • Heat Trace Cables
  • Interior Tower Lighting


  • Outdoor Area Lighting on the Tower and/or Parking Lot
  • Proper Grounding & Bonding Protection
  • Service Entrance Panels
  • Tank Mixers Installation
  • UL Listed Lightning Protection Systems
  • Unit Heaters

With our own highly trained crew and equipment (including trencher, backhoe, and mini-excavator), underground conduits for the owner/utility of the project often fall under our scope. Windemuller also works with painting and maintenance contractors to do routine repairs and upgrades on existing lightning, grounding and SCADA systems.

On Site Safety

The jobsite on a water tower is 150 feet straight up, so safety is our highest priority. Having and knowing how to use proper equipment is paramount, and at Windemuller, we pride ourselves on having no lost-time accidents on any water tower projects.
